Lassen Volcanic National Park is perhaps the crown jewel of America’s national parks. It is a remote, nearly hidden land of jaw-dropping alpine lakes, steaming volcanic vents, splattering mud pots, boiling springs— and as you experience them, you will know that the earth is not quiet. In Lassen, you will experience Bumpass Hell and Boiling Springs volcano sites and filled with the soft edges of sulfur clouds. Photography, a renaissance landscape as new growth, overtakes the stark Redding Burn and then move on to quiet Lilly ponds filled with exquisite patterns and textures. You will explore and photograph along backcountry trails and roads, which will take you to remote and stunning locations during the golden hours and at other times when polarizing and neutral density filters can make a creative difference.
The Lassen National Park Master Class Photography Workshop is a 5-day full immersion program from August 24-29, 2021 that teaches a capture to post-production workflow to create fine art landscape photography. We are not a photography tour provider; we are a visual arts, photography education program. Thus, you will spend significant time at each location with your instructor to develop a deep understanding of your subject and theme and learn to complete your vision in post-production.
